It appears Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez might think her core constituency is the coveted “sea sponge” demographic because PJ Media’s Matt Margolis reports that a new poll shows that a remarkable 67% of Democratic voters believe that the world only has 12 years left to combat climate change before the damages from global warming are irreversible.

As Margolis points out, this 12 years doomsday clock comes in large part from AOC’s claim that the human race had that amount of time to enact “meaningful” legislation to save the planet — a claim she later said was a joke and one that “you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal.”

The poll of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on May 20-21, 2019 by Rasmussen via telephone and online surveys. The poll found that “that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters agree that the United States has only 12 years to aggressively fight climate change or else there will be disastrous and irreparable damage to the country and the world. 40% disagree, while 11% are undecided.”

When broken down into party lines, the aforementioned 67% of Democrats vs. the 28% of Republicans who believe there is limited to fight climate change highlights the stark differences between the two political parties on the issue. This poll also found that “61% of all voters think that most politicians who raise climate change issues do so to get elected rather than to address real problems. ”

But Margolis makes an interesting note — the most surprising aspect of this poll is how much the numbers have changed for Democratic voters since the question was first asked in January.

via PJ Media:

The most fascinating thing about the poll, aside from the large percentage of Democrat sea sponges who believe the 12-year prediction, is how the number of voters who believe it has skyrocketed in just a few months. When Rasmussen first polled on this issue back in January, after Ocasio-Cortez first publicly made her prediction, only 23 percent of voters agreed with it.

Back in January, however, only 34 percent of Democrats believed what Ocasio-Cortez says only a sea sponge would have taken seriously. This shows the incredible influence the socialist wing of the Democratic Party has on the party as a whole.

    “There’s a sucker born every minute.”
    ― P.T. Barnum
    And it appears that most of them are Democrats…
    When I went to high school I really thought that most of the people in my class were pretty smart, today I admit freely that I was wrong as most of them believe this crap.
    This is at least the third one of these deadlines that have been put forth and all of them have been proved to be a total hoax. Meanwhile, Al Gore, the guy who got the Nobel Prize for Global Warming, has teamed up with David Blood and become wealthy handling other people’s money that is invested in “green” industries none of which have proved to be realistic and none of which have managed to stay in business over 2 years without additional bailouts. The cost is in the Trillions around the world.
    Even AOC says “you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it is literal.” yet millions do. And they are teaching this crap in our schools.

      Art you are correct, this is evidence that these liberals are hive minded. They can’t think for themselves, they sit around waiting for their “queen” to tell them what to think and no matter how insane it is they will follow like good little lemmings. It reminds me of the show “Family Feud” when one stupid family member offers a ridicules answer and the rest of the family agrees and roots for the dummy.

    AOC should cease insulting sea sponges. Her constituency and followers are far less intelligent than a sea sponges.

    DEMOCRATS LOVE STUPID PEOPLE. THEY HAVE RAISED THEM IN THEIR INNER CITIES FOR YEARS AND YEARS. DEMOCRATS ARE JUST KEEPING THE PRACTICE GOING THAT THE SLAVE OWNERS (MOSTLY DEMOCRATS) USED TO KEEP THEIR SLAVES IN LINE. DEMOCRATIC POLITICIANS WANT TO KEEP THEIR VOTING BASE UNEDUCATED AND STUPID. THEN EVERY TWO AND FOUR YEARS, PROMISE THEM ANYTHING TO GET THEIR VOTES BUT NEVER DELIVER. IN THE LAST FEW YEARS, THE BLACK POPULATION IS WAKING UP AND GOING AGAINST THE DEMOCRATS. NOW THE DEMOCRATS WANT ALL OF THE UNEDUCATED ILLEGALS THEY CAN GET IN THIS COUNTRY SO THEY CAN RAISE A NEW BASE OF STUPID PEOPLE TO REPLACE THE BLACKS. 12 YEARS LEFT IS A BUNCH OF CRAP. THE U.S. CANNOT CLEANSE THE AIR OF THE WHOLE WORLD. WE ARE NOT THE BIG POLUTERS. THE U.S. IS FAR AHEAD OF THE REST OF THE WORLD IN POLUTION CONTROL. THE BANNING OF PLATIC STRAWS IS REALLY A JOKE. THE IDIOTIC “GREEN NEW DEAL” PROPOSAL HAS BEEN FIGURED TO MAKE A 1/10 OF 1 PERCENT WORLD CHANGE BUT BASICALLY BANKRUPT OUR COUNTRY, MEANWHILE CHINA, INDIA AND OTHERS DO NOTHING.
